I had a few drinks that night!ADVERTISEMENT‘Records are there to be broken and I’m sure if a Liverpool player was in the same place I was they’d want us to lose as well!AdvertisementAdvertisement‘But it’s no big deal, really. I know it’s a very good record to have and I’m very proud of it, but the most important thing is winning the league and Liverpool are still going to do that.‘At the start of the season it’s all about winning the league title, it’s not about going unbeaten – that’s a bonus if that happens.’ Ray Parlour celebrated Watford’s win over the Premier League leaders (Picture: Getty)Parlour added: ‘I know Arsene Wenger said with our team that we could go unbeaten, but at the start of the season all Jurgen Klopp was interested in was winning the Premier League, which it looks like they’re going to do no problem, so it’s been an impressive season anyway.‘Now, it’s all about can they add the FA Cup, can they add the Champions League?‘They’ve still got an opportunity in the second leg against Atletico Madrid, and it’s going to be difficult because they’re a good side, they’re well organised and hard to break down, but you still fancy Liverpool at Anfield.More: FootballRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starChelsea defender Fikayo Tomori reveals why he made U-turn over transfer deadline day moveMikel Arteta rates Thomas Partey’s chances of making his Arsenal debut vs Man City‘So there’s still lots to play for.’Fellow Arsenal legend Martin Keown, meanwhile, has suggested Liverpool could go unbeaten – next season.He said: ‘Liverpool’s sudden defeat gives me a renewed sense of how remarkable an achievement Arsenal’s Invincibles season was.

first_img Submit Share LeoVegas hits back at Swedish regulations despite Q2 successes August 13, 2020 Björn Nilsson: How Triggy is delivering digestible data through pre-set triggers August 28, 2020 Kambi takes full control of LeoVegas sportsbook portfolio August 26, 2020 StumbleUpon Smoother ‘Next Off’ navigation, a clearer race overview and more detailed information about previous performances for each runner are just some of the improvements made to the horse racing coverage on LeoVegas.This is after LeoVegas implemented the new racing client from Kambi and improved race data from Timeform, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Paddy Power Betfair.Timeform specialises in collecting, analysing and packaging horse racing data and content for its customers. The revamped horse racing coverage on LeoVegas was released on 7 March, just a few days before the start of this year’s Cheltenham Festival.Bradley Callus, Sports Manager in Growth Markets for LeoVegas, made the following comments about the new horse racing setup.“The fresh new horse racing section on LeoVegas is complete with all the information, stats and form you need for a day at the races,” he said. “Once the punter has chosen the race they want to bet on, they are taken to the full race card with more available markets to bet on.“It is also significantly easier for the punter to move between one race and another, with each race categorised according to country, date and meeting.“The timing of this new product rollout was a clear indication of our new racing focus, inspired in part by our successful Cheltenham debut last year. In particular, the separated ‘Next Off’ navigation proved a real hit with our players during a busy week for LeoVegas.”The LeoVegas sportsbook is powered by Kambi, who saw two of its other clients, Unibet and 888, lead the way for overround % at Cheltenham 2018 according to Oddschecker insights on EGR Intel.The Festival was a big loss-maker for the sports betting industry after a succession of short-priced favourites, many of them Irish-trained, raced to victory over the four days of action.
